This week’s PGA Tournament is the 2021 Butterfield Bermuda Championship. The yearly event almost never attracts the top ranked golfers on the planet, which doesn’t make a lot of sense considering the purse is a terrific $6,500,000. But although links men like Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy will sit this one out, excellent players like Matthew Fitzpatrick, Christian Bezuidenhout and Patrick Reed will tee it up. Check out NitroBetting odds and an odds analysis for this year’s Butterfield Bermuda Championship.

Which golfer among the favorites has the best chance of winning the Bermuda Championship? Fitzpatrick or Bezuidenhout?
Neither played at last year’s Bermuda Championship. That’s not necessarily a knock since pro golfers can step onto a course and figure a lot of things out during a single practice round. The 27-year-old Fitzpatrick has scored five top ten finishes this year. He’s had some decent finishes like the fourth at the RBC Heritage back in April. Fitzpatrick won the Estrella Damm N.A. Andalucia Masters in mid-October. The English golfer is playing well. So we must give him a shot.
Christiaan Bezuidenhout, a 27-year-old from South Africa, is also playing well. In his last, Bezuidenhout finished fifth at the BMW Championship at Wentworth Golf Club in Surrey, England. The top five finish is enough to give the South African the edge. Among the chalk, Bezuidenhout looks like the better play.
Which golfer or golfers showing odds from +2200 to +3500 can take home the Bermuda Championship trophy?
When Patrick Reed is at the top of his game, he can dominate a field like this. But Reed isn’t playing well. He finished sixty-eigth at The CJ Cup and missed the cut at the Shriner’s Children Hospital. At the odds, Reed looks like a play against. Mito Pereira finished third at the Fortinet Championship in September. This season, Pereira has made the cut in three straight tournaments played. He’s worth a long look to get it done in Bermuda.
Another golfer to consider in this odds range is Russell Knox. The Scotsman shot a decent -8 at the 2020 Bermuda Championship. At the Fortinet, Knox fell apart on Saturday and Sunday, shooting a 75 and 74. But on Thursday and Friday, Knox rocked it with a 69 and 67. If he’s got his sticks working all four days, he can win the Bermuda Championship.
Name a golfer or golfers at odds from +4000 to +5000 who can win the Bermuda title?
Last year, Willett shot a +1 in Bermuda. He’s too good of a golfer not to consider, though. The odds make Willett a must look. Another golfer at decent odds with a shot is Ryan Armour. The 45-year-old American made the cut at the Fortinet Championship. His 2020 Bermuda Championship performance was great. Armour finished at -11 and 4 strokes off winner Brian Gay. Armour could surprise at big odds. Another with a shot in this odds category is Denny McCarthy. McCarthy shot a -12 at last year’s tournament. He too could surprise and score a trophy at overlay odds.
Is there a golfer at +5500 odds or higher that can win the Bermuda Championship?
Scott Stalling shot a -6 at last year’s tournament. The performance was 9 strokes off the winner. Stalling’s familiarity with the course could mean something. Not only that, but Stallings is in great form. He shot a couple of 67s at the Fortinet Championship to finish sixth. For his efforts, Scott banked $220,850. The sticks are hot, which makes Stallings a big time overlay at +6000.
